Why do it for free?

Better yet, why do it for money?

It’s only recently in history that someone got paid for writing a book or painting a picture or playing the guitar.

For centuries, you didn’t make art for money, you did it because it made you happy. As a result, you shared that experience with others.

Art is about connection. A labor of love. To make change happen. Not for clicks or for popularity.

We do what we do for free not because we want to. Because we must.

No catch. No angle. No “this for that.”

Whatever it is you do, do it. Do it well. Do it for free. Again and again.
